FS Olympic offers programming and coaching for those interested in competing in Olympic Weightlifting. Our members are active in local, regional and national competitions and a number represent New Zealand internationally at age group, senior and masters level.

Founded in 2012, we continue to set the standard in New Zealand weightlifting. We are home to some of New Zealand’s best lifters. Our club routinely sets 100’s of New Zealand records annually. We cater to youth (15-17), junior (18-20), senior (21+) and masters (35+) with a vision to promote Olympic Weightlifting as a sport and training methodology suitable for all levels and abilities.

Members train within a team-training environment; allowing support, encouragement and constructive feedback in addition to formal coaching. As a club we host and assist in running weightlifting competitions and have regular club social events.
